I definitely love the scalloped edge. It looks so cute and fashionable paired with your favorite old jeans! You definitely don't need to buy new jeans to be fashionable, you could use your favorite ones to customize your outfit.

Post image for Desert Terrariums With Terrain

I love getting the opportunity to collaborate with Terrain. Throughout the year, they host fun workshops at their store in Glen Mills,PA. Only a short drive away from our home office, it’s always a treat when I get the chance to visit the store and work with one of the talented gals who work there. This time, I linked up with Megan, the Design By Terrain Supervisor, for a workshop on how to create the perfect desert terrarium!Read More

Nice containers fro desert plants. The glass hole in two areas allows better air flow which is critical in keeping the succulent and cactus roots from rotting. I would be careful with the sand especially since many places sell limestone sand that retains water sand tends to grow algae. Better to use white rocks as topping and mix perlite in the soil to allow better air flow. AdeniumRose company rare and unusual cactus, succulent plants.

Since I finished that book I've started 4 businesses. An online marketing system is the perfect way to get started online, because you get to build your list and get educated at the same time. A skilled SEO campaigner knows to ease out a complex site and re-structure it to suit real users as well as search engines.

Post image for How To Distress Your Boots The Free People Way

I’m the type of girl who will wear boots all year round.Read More

Joyce Coolidge -Aug 13, 2014, 5:09PM
If your boots are uncomfortable, it's because they don't fit your feet. The methods used in the DYI, and ruing the support of the boots. Part of the reason we like distressed boots, is because each mark is a reminder of some activity. We like stuff with a history. If you like that distressed look, put your boots on (and your big girl panties) and live your life with them on. Don't fake it.
Gen -Jul 17, 2014, 1:07PM
Or you could find some distressed ones for less money at a thrift shop :)

The idea came to me in a dream last week.Read More

Anon -Feb 26, 2015, 11:42AM
Do not waste your money on this recipe, our Biotechnology class used it to test the effectiveness of Natural sanitizer compared to chemical and this one didn't work at all. It was an oily mess and a waste of $50
Laurie -Oct 17, 2014, 8:13AM
How long will this last. Does it "go bad" after a certain period of time?
